BioApply polymers_2012 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Bioplastics Solutions!from the idea to the finished product!
  • 2. JOINT VENTURE! BioApply Polymers is your one stop provider for your biomaterials based projects.! •  Founded in 2011. Based in Gland (VD) with industrial site in Büren a.A. (BE). Representative Offices in San Diego (US) and Dubai (UAE).! •  We combine forces of a polymer processing market leader and a pioneering bioproducts brand.! •  Proprietary and exclusive biocompound grades.! •  Product development, process engineering and prototyping.!
  • 3. BIOPLASTICS GROWING FAST! 18% - 22% Current annual growth rate! Europe accounts for close to 50%! +600% 2000 – 2008 increase of biodegradable plastics consumption! 1.7 million Tons Global production capacity by 2015 ! Bags, packaging and film Main sectors today! Automotive, electronics, textile Fastest growing sectors! Biobased polymers potential subsitute to 85% of polymers!
  • 4. MARKET DRIVERS!Environmental Between 500 Billion and 1 Trillion plastic bags per year worldwide!North America and Europe account for 80%  !Consumer Awareness Demand for sustainable products!Restrictions / bans on plastic Accelerate shift towards bioplastics!Innovations bioploymers, process, technical specs!Composting & Biogas increase and benefits !Corporate Commiments to biosourcing !
  • 5. SHIFTING TOWARDS BIOPLASTICS! Customers want new products, innovation and sustainability! •  Supplying biomaterial only = limited chance to succeed! •  Key players only supply their material portfolio! •  Industrial partners = limited experience in bio product development! •  How do I measure the sustainability of an alternative ?! •  Will it fit my production, use, and end of life management processes ?!
  • 6. What we do! From your Idea to the finished Product !!
  • 7. Materials! Bioplastics which substitute following fossil fuel plastics: HDPE, LDPE, PVC-U, PVC-P, PP, PET, ABS, TPE, TPU, etc. ! Bioplastics can resist to some acids, alcohol, oil, water, high UV resistant, etc. ! Proprietary, exclusive and other Compounds: Starch based, vegetable waste, wood based, natural fibres, PHA, PLA, copolyester, etc..! Fields of processing: Injection moulding, extrusion of film, sheets, tubes, profiles, blow film, blow moulding, thermoforming, etc…! Fields of application: Packaging, food industry, toys, automotive, medical, electrical, construction, agricultural, etc. !
  • 8. Materials! Bio Polymers! Standard fossil fuel polymers! LD-PE – Low density polyethylene! Rigid                            E-­‐Modulus                                So.   TPE ! BioS-US 10 – 500 ! TPU! PVC-P (soft) ! MDPE! BioS-SO 520 – 800 ! PP! HD-PE – High density polyethylene! BioS-FX 820 – 1500 ! PVC-U (rigid)! PP ! HD-PE – High density polyethylene! PVC-U (rigid)! BioS-SR 1520 – 2000 ! PP ! PET ! ABS! HD-PE – High density polyethylene! PVC-U (rigid)! BioS-RI 2020 – 4000! PP ! BioS-UR > 4020 ! PET ! ABS!
  • 9. Biodegradability & Certifications! Certifications: EN 13 432, EN 71-3 -9, LFGB, FDA, Respect Code, etc.! Bioplastics with following environmental characteristics: Biodegradable, industrial compostable, nature compostable, water soluble, GMO free, non food! Biodegradability  test   Independent  control  and  cer-fica-on:     EN  13  432   Test  launch              +10  days                            +20  days                            +30  days                        +40  days   Weight    loss                32,1%                                        55,7%                                              69%                                90%
